Description

It's got to be an aim of any good garden to have some colour and beauty right through the autumn, and that's exactly what penstemons give – spires of brilliant, coloured bells often until Christmas.

This collection contains 5 young plants each of:

  • Penstemon 'Heavenly Blue'
  • Penstemon 'Garnet'
  • Penstemon 'Snowstorm'
  • Penstemon 'Blackbird'

Care Tips

Leave the current seasons growth on over winter to provide protection and mulch around the base of the plant in autumn with compost or leaf mould. Cut back old growth in late spring as new shoots are appearing.
